Madagascar and Burundi face each other in a game from Group B of the African Cup of Nations
The teams of Madagascar and Burundi face each other in a game from Group B of the African Cup of Nations. Let us offer you our predictions football 1×2 for this clash in the city of Alexandria.
Madagascar began their participation at the Cup of Nations by winning a point against Guinea. The match between these two sides ended with a 2-2 draw. At the halftime Madagascar were down by a goal, but at the beginning of the second half Nicolas Dupuis’ boys scored two quick goals. Anicet Abel equalised, while Charles Andriamatsinoro made it 1-2.
Madagascar tried to hold on their lead in the result, but just 10 minutes after their second goal, Guinea managed to equalise with a strike from Francois Kamano from a penalty kick. Clearly Madagascar had a chance to achieve a win in this game, but they didn’t have enough luck to do it. But here’s the moment to remind you that this is their first participation at the Cup of Nations, so this was a first historical point for this country in the competition.
In the same time Burundi started their campaign in Group B with a defeat from the hands of Nigeria. But despite of being a clear underdog against the Super Eagles, Olivier Niyungeko’s boys did pretty well on the pitch. For 77 minutes they were keeping a clean sheet in the game, before Nigeria’s winner being scored by the substitute Odion Ighalo.
For Burundi this is a first participation at the Cup of Nations, too. Many people expected that they are going to be crushed by the Super Eagles in a heavy way, but this didn’t happen. Let’s see if now they can win their first point in the tournament as well.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Cup of Nations clash between Madagascar and Burundi on Thursday night. Good luck!
